Health Questions & Answers



My 11 yr. spayed newf with cushings and spinal arthritis has bright pink irritated skin in paws between pads & some white spots (since MAY!). Vet has done antib's, neo-predef, I've done colloidal silver, apple c. vinegar, etc. and vet has only seen a few yeast cells. She doesn't want to walk b/c it hurts her. We are very frustrated. Vet said next would be a zinc derm spray or biopsy. I use boric acid for eye and skin but not sure about use i dogs so am wondering if the Derma-ionx could be useful for this? Thank you. Dorothy

DERMA-IONX can be helpful for a variety of skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aid the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

   Initially  I would give a half dose of  DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and  supper food.  After there are signs of  improvement  you can give a whole  dose once a day.  I would also give  Probiotics  to aid  digestion.  OMEGA 3,6,9 is  soothing,  reduces irritation,  and improves coat quality.  Vitamin C,  MSM,  and quercetin can have an  antihistamine effect.  

  The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine.  Chlorine is not good for the intestinal flora.  Diet can also influence the body.   Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference.  I would choose a grain free  food  that uses fish or turkey as the protein since these are considered to be cooling for too much internal heat  according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral.   Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming and so I avoid these especially in the summer.    If your dog is allergic to a protein do not use it even it has the correct thermal property.  I tend to use cooling or neutral foods during the summer and warming foods during the cold months for my healthy pets. 

    You can use Zn7 Derm Spray topically along with DERMA-IONX.  Sometimes I have used Zymox creme rinse undiluted on hot spots so it should be helpful on the feet as well.   Try to keep it from being immediately licked off.
